La Porte Fire Station #3 | La Porte, Texas

A long-life, heavy-usage facility where maintenance life cycle costing was critically important

This one-story steel frame and masonry structure is a long-life, heavy-usage facility in which maintenance life cycle costing was of critical importance. The project site is located in northwest La Porte, Texas. The residential and apparatus bay programs are hinged by a connecting bar at the center of the design. They are simultaneously interlocked and kept separate by this core bar for both function and composition of the structure. The roof plane provides an overarching, unifying element that overhangs and binds these two programs together.
